BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- U.N. weapons inspectors looking for evidence of weapons of mass destruction took in Baghdad universities during their searches on Monday.

They are due to report their progress to the U.N. Security Council on January 27.

Iraq's Information Ministry says inspectors visited the following locations:

• A chemical team went to the University of Technology in Baghdad.

• A nuclear team went to Ibn Rushd, also at the University of Technology. The site belongs to Iraq's Military Industrialization Commission.

• A missile team headed towards Amiriyat Al Falluja, west of Baghdad, a site that has been visited before by nuclear experts.

• A biological team visited the College of Science for Men and College of Science for Women at the University of Baghdad.

• A joint team headed west to Al Ramadi.

• A missile team returned from Basra.

A group of U.S. academics, Iraqi-American Academics Together for Peace, arrived in Iraq on Sunday to attend a series of conferences at the University of Baghdad later this week.
